    The only prob Pocket is that as you are not trained in the use of, technically the law would come down hard on you in the case of an accident.

    The accessory to the "crime", (your supplier) would also be liable as an accomplice

    I am not inferring that you are incompetent. But the regulation is there for a purpose due to the nature of the gas.

    Re: anyone in the uk care qualified xs forums member needs help

    Why have you chosen care 45?

    Is the system going to inside the computer?

    If so DO NOT use any care gas!!!

    As you might be aware of, care gas is flamable and must be kept away from sources of ignition. So putting the system or even the pipe work inside the case could cause trouble.

    Why even are you using r290?

    http://www.intergas.co.uk/r290.html

    Both these products are flamable and are altrnatives to R22.

    What type of compresor are you using?

    R290 is fairly high pressure, Care 45 is even higher. A company can't just sell you something dangerous without making sure you can use it.

    As chillin says, sounds like for this app that you want something non-flammable.
    It's a lovely day to pump some gas

    For PC cooling, R134a is the most common. Some high end setups use R404a or even more exotic gases. Some even use cascades.

    Re: anyone in the uk care qualified xs forums member needs help

    hi first of all i now use 404a and c02 in my systems r290 and care 45 are both safe gases they are contained within a completly sealed unit and there for it is impossible for them to ignite secondly there is no air inside a refrigeration system so that counts out the ability of a flamable gas to ignite and burn.
    the cooler sits underneath the pc with the evap and suction line coming through the bottom of the case and onto the processor. at the time i was trying to aquire care 45 as it was enviromentally friendly and the only gas to compete with 404a and 507. I understand phase change very well and have built many systems that reach down to -110 i am not mindlessly playing with dangerous gases thanks.
